Personal experiences with the name Emerald: | Edit

I knew someone named Emerald who became a great friend of mine. We always thought it funny because my name is Amethyst and together we were "two little gems".

I have always loved the name Emerald. If I ever have a daughter (please no more boys) I would want to name her that and have her go by Emmy.
